Linux CEO Brings Open Web Services for Online Dating to Social Networking

Filed under
Humor

Kevin Carmony, recently-resigned CEO for desktop Linux vendor Linspire, today unveiled his new venture, Dating DNA, LLC (www.datingdna.com). Dating DNA provides free and open Web Services which bring 1-click compatibility scoring and other sophisticated dating features to Social Networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Craigslist, as well as to Internet devices such as Apple's iPhone and the Chumby web appliance (www.chumby.com).

"Online dating continues to move dramatically away from traditional dating sites such as Match.com and eHarmony," said Carmony. "Each day, more and more people are using Social Networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, Craigslist, and others, as a means of meeting new people to date. Utilizing these sites is free and provides a far more natural way of meeting people than traditional dating sites of the past. Dating DNA is the first company to capitalize on this trend, by bringing the convenience of matching tools from traditional dating sites to these new Social Networking avenues, something which has been sorely missing."

Carmony believes that just like everyone's genetic DNA is different, so too is everyone's "dating DNA."

It's just a name...

"Dating DNA" is just a catchy name, sort of like Turbo Linux. Does it really have a turbo charged engine inside? Wink

Fact: People ARE using Social Networking sites (and the net in general) to meet people to date.

All Dating DNA tries to do is get you past all those basic introduction questions quickly. For example, I wouldn't date a smoker. I wouldn't date someone who is married. I wouldn't date someone who is living at home with their parents. etc.

This is all addressed in the FAQs on our site: http://www.datingdna.com/?a=faq

Proving once again that people (in huge massive numbers) ARE getting dumber by the day, and that the human species is doomed.

Is Open Source an Open Invitation to Hack Webmail Encryption?

While the open source approach to software development has proven its value over and over again, the idea of opening up the code for security features to anyone with eyeballs still creates anxiety in some circles. Such worries are ill-founded, though. One concern about opening up security code to anyone is that anyone will include the NSA, which has a habit of discovering vulnerabilities and sitting on them so it can exploit them at a later time. Such discoveries shouldn't be a cause of concern, argued Phil Zimmermann, creator of PGP, the encryption scheme Yahoo and Google will be using for their webmail. Read more
